What is a Meme Coin?

Unlike native coins or alternative coins (Altcoin), meme coins are a type of cryptocurrency that is created as a joke or meme, often based on popular internet memes or trends which are most of the time produced as a parody or satire of traditional cryptocurrencies. The value of meme coins primarily depends on their popularity and the level of social media hype they generate, rather than any significant underlying technology or utility.
